Product Description

The release of GTEK's 16-port serial board - Cyclone16 is here! This next generation, Intelligent UART serial board is an exciting addition to our already outstanding line of serial boards. This impressive piece of engineering will take the industry by storm!

Incredible speed with second generation 16C654 UARTS! Large transmit/receive FIFOS and automatic handshaking do all the work with resultant data rates to a remarkable 460.8 Kbps! The larger FIFOS ensure data integrity across high speed lines. Perfect for ISDN!

Setup is a breeze! The Cyclone16 is packed with powerful features including 8 addressing modes and 9 IRQ selections - perfect for operating systems that support shared IRQ's, like Windows NT and Windows 95. Linux, BSDI, DOS, and OS/2 are also supported.

Priced competitively - You'll see that the Cyclone Serial Expansion Units are unlike any other multiport board on the market today. These new products are the solution to Internet and Intranet Connectivity! Check the competition - no one beats GTEK!

Cyclone16/32 Features:

  • 16C654 Intelligent UARTS! The best on the market today!
  • Built-in -12 VDC power supply reduces load on host computer.
  • Incredible data throughput! Up to 460.8 Kbps on all ports! 64 byte transmit/receive FIFO's and automatic handshaking - means less overhead on your system.
  • Upgrade from 16 to 32 ports. Only one interface board is required!
  • Flexible addressing modes available. There are 8 addressing modes (6 vertical and two horizontal modes) to choose from. We've enabled vertical addressing modes to allow you to tap unused I/O space. This greatly minimizes hardware conflicts.
  • 9 IRQ selections to choose from.
  • Operating systems supported: WindowsNT, Windows95, Linux, FreeBSD, BSDI, OS/2 (use SIO) and DOS. PCI version uses NT4 only.
  • Compatible with all popular BBS/Internet software: PCBoard, MajorBBS, Worldgroup, , Metaworlds, Esoft, Durand Mindwire, Wildcat, and much more!
